KGS Founding Father Retires From Comic Store West

KGS would be remiss if we allowed the occasion to pass without comment. The fella that initially formed the gaming group that would become KGS retired today after 25 years in the comics industry. While this is sad news for Comic Store West (which is left in the capable hands of Brian Waltersdorff and Joe Miller with Scott as manager), it may be KGS's gain because we're trying really hard to get Brett to use his newly discovered free time to return to the gaming table with us.

Brett - job well done! Congratulations on your retirement! I wonder if those signs that say, "Brett's Office" will be changed to read, "Brian's Office?"

This photo is like Where's Waldo?... Where's Brett? Oh yeah, he's not here anymore. He's at home watching Star Wars.

Role Playing Games I'm Looking Forward to in 2012

The three RPG games I’m looking forward to most in 2012:

1> Mutant Epoch – Even though this game came out toward the end of 2011 I have not had a chance to read or play it yet.  There is a ton of support for this game and I am really looking forward to playing it.

2> Marvel RPG – Fans of the KGS know how much I love the original Marvel RPG.  Well the new version is about a month away and I am very excited to see what they done to it. 

3> Finally, just announced D&D 5.0.  Yes you heard it a new version of Dungeons and Dragons is due out by the end of 2012.  WOTC is promising to design a game based on input from the many, many fans of the game.  Play testing to start very soon.  I was not a huge fan of 4th edition but I’m hoping all of the problems from 4th will be adjusted with the new version later this year.  Hopefully it will it stores before the end of the world on December 21.
